Manchester United are considering an approach in signing Montpellier star Remy Cabella in the summer transfer window, according to the Tutto Mercato Web.

The 24-year-old midfielder took to social networking site Twitter to confirm his side's home game against Bastia would be his last game for the Ligue 1 club. Cabella tweeted: "Tonight the last game at the Stadium of Masson."

The report claims the French midfielder's latest comments have alerted United, who have been closely following him in the past few years. Cabella was close to joining Newcastle United in January, only for the deal to collapse in the later stages.

He has seen his form improve in the recently concluded season, scoring 14 goals and managing five assists from 36 league appearances. This has attracted interest from top clubs across Europe.

The Tutto Mercato Web claims Spanish capital club Atletico Madrid and Bundesliga giant Borussia Dortmund are also keen on acquiring Cabella's services. However, it is believed that United are leading the race for the Montpellier midfielder's signature.

Cabella has made no secret of his desire to make a switch to Old Trafford and has been reported saying that it is a dream for any player to join United. Earlier in February he admitted the French outfit's president will decide the transfer fee.

"Manchester United is always a dream for any player. But you must ask my father who looks after me. Until there is something serious, I will say nothing. It is also a matter of respect for my club and Mr. Nicollin [Montpellier president]," Cabella told French TV BeIN Sport.

"We'll see in May when it will be discussed. For now I am with Montpellier. It is a trust agreement. The price? It is the president who decides."

Cabella was also on Newcastle's radar and the Tyneside club could make an approach for him this summer. However, Montpellier's president has urged the French midfielder to reject a chance to make a switch to St James' Park.
